    question

    Just saw the film of the wings of the dove. Does anyone know what the piece is that Densher narrates as a voice over when millie's funeral is taken place. It ends with the phrase "on the wings of a dove". is it a poem or is it actually in the novel by henry james?

    I did some research and it's actually from the Bible, apparently. It's a part of Psalm 55.

    My heart is in anguish within me,
    And the terrors of death have fallen upon me.
    Fear and trembling come upon me,
    And horror has overwhelmed me.
    I said, "Oh, that I had wings like a dove!
    I would fly away and be at rest.
